Based on color reports from around Oregon and Washington–the peak of fall colors is underway right now! It’s not over but the peak has started.
Details On The Peak Fall Colors For Washington And Oregon
In the northwest, including places like Portland, Seattle and down toward Medford, we have what I like to call a ‘rolling peak’ which means some trees have already hit peak color and will kind of ‘fade out’ over the next few days. The first picture in this post is an example.
- But as you see in this second photo, other trees are just now part way through their color change and will start their peak color in the next 3-5 days.
- This means that our rolling peak is underway here on October 26th and should last about 10 more days or until approximately November 5th.
- Some of the late changing trees will still show color after this date but more and more of our trees will be fading to their winter brown-gray mode.
